Lighting candles for lost loved ones this holiday season in Maple Ridge

St. George’s Anglican Church is hosting a special evening for honouring those that have passed on.

Seasonal holidays can be a difficult time for those who have lost a loved one.

That is why St. George’s Anglican Church is hosting a candle-lit non-denominational evening called A Time To Remember. The event is an annual tradition at the church and is open to anyone in the community to honour their friend or family member.

It will be an evening of readings, songs and candle lighting that, for Mark Vosper, executive director of the Ridge Meadows Hospice Society, is “a very special evening to remember the people we are missing from our lives.”

Furthermore a special photo tribute slideshow will be put together by the staff at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel. Attendees are invited to submit a photograph by Dec. 3.

The Maple Ridge Choral Society will also be performing.

A Time To Remember takes place at 7 p.m. on Dec. 6 at St. George’s Anglican Church, 23500 Dewdney Trunk Rd. in Maple Ridge.

The Ridge Meadows Hospice Society is a registered charity that provides free support to individuals and their loved ones in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows that are experiencing the end of life journey, grief and bereavement.
